    Server Help

    I was wondering what distro would be the best for a web server. Its a 533Mhz with 256MB of RAM. I just want something that will take up less resource as possible (like idling in command line).

    I like Red Hat 9.0 pro but almost every distro can serve web fine without X.
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    Slackware and Debian are excellent server distributions. Both are suitable for older hardware as well so they will run as smoothly as possible on your 533Mhz.
